look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Appearance - pours nearly black with a clean, tightly bubbled mocha cap, receding slowly, leaving a little lace behind. Strong backlight shows off some dark red and brown.

Aroma - initial vapors show some fresh grain along with some good chocolate and roasted coffee aromas. The graininess fades almost completely away, the chocolate/coffee diminishes a bit but shows good persistence.

Taste - grainy malt up front along with a sour, perhaps lemony flavor. Some chocolate flavors start to develop but are a bit impeded by some hefty carbonation. Ends as a toss-up between the lemon and the roasty malt. A different kind of stout, I'm thinking this might be interesting to try as a Black & Tan with Bass. It doesn't register much in the coffee, roasty/charcoal areas which to me set apart my favorite stouts. I was hoping for improvement with warmth but not much occurred.

Mouthfeel - a thinner stout with high carbonation. Some lower bubbles may allow more development of the roasted malt profile, but it's on style and a good attempt.

Drinkability - I'm a little torn here. The lighter body certainly increases quaffability and the freshness is impressive, but the grainy/lemon sourness is partially masking what I am trying to taste. As the beer warms, appearances of the roasty side occur more frequently, so let this beer get up to 55 degrees to release its best.
